Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Millionaire is a show that allows people to win $1,000,000 by answering 15 correct multiple choice questions on a variety of topics. Millionaire is now in it's 7th season, and is currently hosted by Meredith Vieira. During your game you get 3 lifelines to use, Phone-A-Friend, Ask the Audience, and Double Dip, and then once you reach $1000 you will earn the 4th lifeline which is Ask the Expert. The Expert is revealed during the show, and usually remains throughout the week.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire was originally hosted by Regis Philbin in the Primetime Series from 1999-2002 and was 1 Hour in length. Once the primetime series was cancelled, a syndicated version was started immediately with a couple of changes. There was no more fastest finger question, and there was a new host which was Meredith Vieira, also the game is now only 30 Minutes in length. She has hosted the show for 7 years now (2002-Present). When Regis was host he would always call the show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," however Meredith never uses this, and simply refers to the game as "Millionaire."

There have been 11 Million Dollar Winners in the 10 years it's been running. 9 winners in the Regis version (4 years), and 2 winners in the Meredith version (7 years). It has been a long time since there was a last Million Dollar Winner. The last winner was Nancy Christy which was way back on May 8th 2003. She is also the only girl winner in the U.S. Version.
